We were married on September 14, 2013 and Jennifer Neves was our photographer for the event. When we first met with her as our potential wedding photographer, we immediately knew Jennifer was the perfect person for the job. As the wedding day approached, she maintained communication and reviewed all relevant details, assuring us that she would take care of everything. The wedding finally came and she was everything she promised and much more!
As the groom, my most memorable moment with Jennifer was when she came to retrieve me for my wife late at night. She came down to get me per the request of my wife for a particular song. Although there was no hope of me making it in time for that dance, she made the effort. I also appreciated that Jennifer came prepared with fabric wipes, hair products, and makeup to keep the wedding party looking sharp.
Jennifer’s dedication and passion was evident throughout the day. She stayed later than expected and did not leave until she followed up with both my wife and I. Jennifer’s work ethic, personality, and passion for photography superseded our expectations. I am sure throughout the night some of our demands were somewhat illogical, but she managed to do anything we asked without hesitation.
Upon arriving to my house (the bride), Jennifer knew exactly what photographs to take and where to take them. Now, my family is a bit to deal with and Jennifer was truly charming. My family loved her! Jennifer was in control, but still able to enjoy the experience. I have been in wedding parties where the photographer acts as if he/she is so bothered by the task of corralling people around. Not Jennifer. She was a dream! Our whole wedding party raved about how upbeat and friendly she was.
Her ability to be in control without taking over the event was commendable. Not everything went as planned and her ability to deal with challenges throughout the day by staying composed was impressive. As a photographer her pictures speak for themselves. What makes her such a great wedding photographer is her ability to be Jennifer Neves, the person and the professional. I cannot speak highly enough of her as a person and a photographer. Without a doubt, Jennifer Neves is the best wedding photographer and deserves all of the respective accolades in her profession.

The moment my husband and I met with Jen, we knew that we wanted to work with her. She was energetic, knowledgeable, professional, and most of all, kind. She knew how important our day was to us, and she made sure that we got all the pictures we wanted. I grew up in Rhode Island, but hadn't been to Newport in a while. Jen was knowledgeable about the area, and had a lot of suggestions. The one thing that I think is important when picking a wedding photographer is to make sure you feel comfortable with them. You will spend a lot of time with them your wedding day, and you don't want someone pushy and rude. Jen was absolutely wonderful and pleasant to be around. She is funny and kind, and we loved working with her. She got all of the pictures we wanted and made sure we were done by cocktail hour. She was also very easy to contact throughout the wedding planning process, which is crucial for the time sensitive bride. She got our pictures to us soon after the wedding. She gave us a CD with all of our pictures, which many photographers will not do. I would definitely recommend her to anyone looking for a photographer in the area. Jen was wonderful!

When my husband and I were starting our search for photographers, we asked our venue who they recommended. We were given the phone number of Jennifer Neves. After the first time we met with her, we knew she would be a great fit for our wedding. She has a great personality and definitely makes you feel comfortable. When we did our engagement photos, Jen knew all the best places to go and all the right poses/angles - a true photographer. The photographs came out lovely and we couldn't wait for the wedding. All of the wedding party and our guests loved the professionalism of Jen and her helper and how nice they were. Of course, the pictures came out great again! We are so glad that we went with Jen, it was truly worth everything.

Jen is a true professional and a pleasure to work with. She managed to keep our large group having a great time, organized, focused, and looking good through all of the photos we wanted. She has an eye for the right shot and wants your day to be perfect. She will help you out in any way she can-recommending other vendors, making suggestions, etc. We would not hesitate to recommend Jen to anyone!

From our first meeting with Jen, it was obvious she was the photographer for us. She was energetic, knowledgeable and it was clear she loved her job. (Not to mention her fabulous photos, which speak from themselves!). Throughout the wedding planning process, Jen was always available to answer questions and made wonderful suggestions for other vendors as well.
The weeks leading up to our wedding were far from stress free. We ran into issues with scheduling and uncooperative weather. Jen treated us more like friends than clients, offering advice and options to ensure our day was perfect.
The day of our wedding, Jen and her staff were flawless. They managed to keep our crew in line and having fun, despite the heat. Jen’s ideas for photos were creative and matched our personalities; she made us feel like movie stars. I can’t tell you how many times people have said “these should be in a wedding magazine” when looking at our photos.
My husband and I tell every engaged couple we meet that hiring Jen Neves was the best decision we made throughout the wedding planning process.

I highly recommend Jennifer Neves, she is truly amazing. She is professional, creative and put everyone in my bridal party at ease. I absolutely LOVE my wedding pictures, they are AMAZING!!!
I'm not even quite sure how I stumbled on Jen when looking for photographers, but she ended up being one of the best vendor selections of my wedding. Jennifer was great and was very helpful throughout the whole process. She made us feel very at ease and was great to work with the day of. She was so well prepared and even had a pouch with her of various things in case something went wrong/needed fixing (shout wipes, hairspray, etc.). Her staff (administrative and second photographer) was great as well. She was also one of the more affordable options in Newport when I was looking, which is a bonus and part of the reason we chose her since we felt like we were definitely not sacrificing quality for price. Our photos came out amazing and I really couldn't be happier with the result. I would definitely recommend her as your photographer. You won't be sorry!

You will not be disappointed . Making the decision to choose Jen as our photographer was one of the easiest wedding decisions. She's extremely professional, outgoing, hardworking, and qualified. If you want a photographer that you can count on and one that is in contact with throughout the wedding process, definitely go with Jen. During the year that we had in between initially meeting with Jen and our wedding, Jen was available at any time, she answered any questions we had and returned our calls/texts/emails in a timely manner. We couldn't have been happier. On the wedding day, she arrived early, knew what pictures had to be taken, took charge and got all the pictures, and some, that my husband and I wanted. Now that the wedding is over, Jen has not forgotten about us. We still are in contact with her and her professionalism has not changed.

I knew from the moment I met Jen at the wedding convention I had to have her. She was the first person that caught my eye when I walked in. Her energy, enthusiasm, and her overall personality really made an impression on me. My fiancé knew that it wasn't even a question, I was going to budget whatever I needed to make it happen! Yes ladies that included my dress!!! We met with Jen for the first time and I honestly don't think she was half way through explaining what she had to offer us, I had the pen in my hand ready to sign whatever it was. (Fiancé worried at this point) So there I go and that's where it all started! I originally was supposed to get married on 9-5-14 but moved up my wedding a whole year. My fiancé and I bought a home unexpectedly and we decided on a much smaller wedding, of course my first phone call was Jen! "Jen I'm moving up my wedding date, what do you have available!?" September 6, 2013 it is!! What a beautiful day it was!!! Everything from the weather to my husband -to- be looking his absolute best! That day went smooth from beginning to end! Jen was early (doing blocks around my house just to make sure she was on time probably) she made me feel like an absolute princess. Always making sure that my ideas and thoughts were heard and sincerely making sure I had everything I needed to make it memorable. But that was Jen through and through from day one to the very end. I felt like I knew her for years! She puts out so much positive energy and her team (Mary and Ryan asst. photographer) complemented each other so well. Whenever I had a question or concern, Jen and her team where there to answer my question within the hour. (Ya, their that good!) Her turn over time for my engagement photos were 3 days!!! If I had any advice to give to Brides looking for a photographer it would be this, at the end of the night the only thing you have to take home and have forever is your pictures and video if you choose to do so. I've heard too many other brides say they wished they spent a little more because they were unhappy with there pictures. Please please invest in a good photographer! The best one is Jennifer Neves hands down!!! I don't have to sell my point, her work says it all! Jen I hope you know how talented you are, you put so much hard work into doing so, making sure all your brides are happy, taking time with you family and your beautiful daughter and juggling it all with a smile. I am truly honored to be a Jennifer Neves Bride!!!

Jen is a great photographer! She is unbelievably nice and always returns my phone calls or emails! She made me feel so comfortable on my wedding and so special. It was a pleasure to work with her and now I can't wait to see the pics. Jen and my videographer Mike Picard made a great team also and worked so well together. Jen is a phenomenal photographer and I recommend her to any bride looking for the PERFECT photographer!

The ring was barely on my finger and I was dialing Jen Neves! Jen has photographed several weddings in my family and she did headshots for me a while back. Her work speaks for itself but if you need to hear more I have a plenty to say! Jen has a way of putting you at ease from the moment you meet her. She not only listens to what you want but also follows through. At our first meeting my then fiancé said he wanted some formals after the ceremony but come the reception mostly candid shots. Jen didn't let him down - at the end of the night my husband said "After our dance I never saw Jen!" No, he never saw Jen but she certainly saw him! She captured the very essence of our special day. Oh, did I mention it was about 200 degrees the day of our wedding?... and Jen was completely unphased. She was cool, calm and collected. In the midst of crazy Jen somehow stays centered and creative. Obviously we couldn't wait to see the proofs - AMAZING! The photos exceeded our expectations. We still can't narrow them down - we want them all! Jen is as professional as can be but at the end of the day she is no longer a wedding vendor - she is a friend.
Thank you, Jen!

I met with Jen about my July 6, 2013 wedding and I immediately knew I wanted to work with her...I actually booked her on the spot! Jen has an amazing personality and she made me feel so comfortable and trusting that I would have a great wedding day. When it actually came time for my wedding day, it was one of the hottest days of the year! I planned to take pictures outside in downtown Providence. Jen made my husband and I as well as our wedding party have so much fun taking pictures that we kind of forgot about the heat! Her ideas were absolutely amazing and anything I suggested she went along with as well. We took some traditional wedding pictures but also put a twist on things and used some fun props too! Being in a few other weddings prior to mine, I was able to compare photographers and I believe no one compares to Jen! No one likes an old boring photographer who bosses you around, and Jen was the complete opposite. From what I've seen with her prior work, my engagement photos, and my photo guest book, I know my wedding photos will be amazing and I will always be able to look back and remember how much fun we had taking the pictures! I would 100% recommend Jennifer Neves as your wedding photographer! If you want an awesome experience and don't want to worry about anything, Jen is the best around!

It's been 5 days since my wedding day. I went into planning my wedding with the notion, less is more. Quickly that went out the window and I became obsessed with every little detail. I knew that my top three priorities were food, venue and photographer and not necessarily in that order.
After a bit of research and recommendations from friends, we met Jen. What a fabulous and charismatic woman she is. I immediately found her work ethic and drive honorable and I was drawn in by her open and friendly personality. Jen is remarkably warm and easy to be around. She truly made the whole experience....simply magic! A few highlights were a few very modest boudoir shots, very fun family shots (my husband and I have 6 kids between us) and an awesome trash the dress session immediately following the close of our wedding.
People always ask, "What was your favorite part of the wedding?" my response would be the ceremony and my trash the dress session. My husband was right when he said, "We have to do it that day. When are we ever going to look at each other the same way?"
I have the typical bridal blues being only five days after the happiest day of my life. I've spent many hours reflecting on how our day went. I've wondered how our kids looked as they walked down the aisle and the expressions on our family and guests faces when we exchanged vows had our first dance and when we cut the cake. I know Jen captured it all and I'm stoked to see those memories. Now I just have to wait...
Thanks Jen, I'm forever grateful to have found you.

If you are searching for a photographer for your wedding..Search no further. Jen is by far the best around and she will NOT disappoint. She is so sweet and a wonderful person but on top of that she is a phenomenal photographer. I will treasure my wedding photos forever! She pays very close attention to detail and captured every aspect of my wedding beautifully. Worth every penny!

I was referred to Jen by 2 different friends that had her photograph their weddings. I was not your typical bride. I was planning a wedding from 8 hours away. She was very quick with returning calls, emails, and texts. Her work is beyond amazing and her passion for photography shows in all her final products. Not only is she very professional, but she is also very caring, creative, personable, and EXTREMELY FUN. I felt like I had known her for years and she had been a part of my family. Jen is so awesome. Any bride would be so lucky to have her photograph their very special day. She gets just as excited as the bride and groom and captures every special moment. She was definitely worth every penny. If you want fabulous pictures, Jen is your girl!!!!!!!!!!!

Jen honestly was such a wonderful photographer: she took beautiful engagement pictures in order to get to know us and to get comfortable with the camera a couple of months before our wedding. The photos were so stunning that all our friends and family said they couldn't wait for the wedding pictures!
We got married two weeks ago and Jen already has almost completed her edits for our wedding and I am sure they will be just as (if not more) fabulous than the engagement shoot.
Jen is such a sweet person and makes you feel at ease immediately upon meeting her. She knows the right questions to ask in order to make sure she understands your vision. She came to our wedding venue ahead of time to scope out the lighting and the space -- like I said, above and beyond.
I would recommend Jen to anyone getting married in the Northeast.

As a bride, you try to take mental snapshots of every second of your wedding day, but with everything going on, it's just impossible. That's why I'm so grateful to have Jennifer Neves' beautiful photographs that will immortalize the best day of my life forever, and piece together all the little details I have already forgotten. From the first meeting with Jen, I felt like I was one of her good friends. She made me feel like I was the only bride she cared about, and that my day would be the best wedding ever. Jen went above and beyond her job. For our free engagement session, my husband and I wanted to take the photos in Boston. Jen made the trek up there and eagerly brought us from one place to the next, walking miles to get the perfect shot. She stopped traffic to get an "urban feel" and I will never forget how caring she was that we had the perfect day. Then, when I wanted to use her photo for our "Save the Date," I ran into a problem with the online vendor. Jen put my priorities before her own and went out of her way to make sure I had the photo I needed...for free, even though it was very inconvenient for her to do all that for me. Leading up to the week of my wedding, rain was in the forecast. Jen called me and told me some great places to book "just in case" it rained and we couldn't take our photos outside. She didn't have to do that, but she wanted to make our pictures beautiful and memorable. On the morning of the wedding, she tried new types of photos she had never done before and seemed more excited about them than me, the bride! Jen pours her heart and soul into everything she does. She's a true artist and this is her passion. Her patience, cheerfulness, organization and assertiveness make her an expert at her job. I say assertiveness because she is so creative and won't let anyone hold her back from capturing the perfect moment. For example, our wedding was in Newport, RI and we wanted a photo on the cobblestone part of Thames Street. Jen had our trolley pull over and stopped traffic so we could get in the street for a few photos. I felt so special having passersby watch us and congratulate us, and felt even more honored that Jen cared so much about our wishes that she stopped traffic to get the perfect photo! I am so honored that my children and grandchildren and great-grandchildren will all be able to get a great picture of how wonderful our wedding day was, thanks to the amazing skills of Jennifer Neves Photography. I recommend her with the upmost enthusiasm to anyone getting married in New England.

I had the best experience with Jen Neves Photography. Jen is extremely professional and gives it her all when she is shooting. She captures all of the special moments from our special day and I can't be any happier. She has a unique trait to pick out the best locations to shoot these special moments. She is very well prepared and has the whole day planned out with backup plans in case of weather/unexpected events. Jen is also very professional when working with other vendors, ensuring everyone is able to complete their job at task. Jen has done other family weddings and we would recommend her highly. If you want those special moments captured forever HIRE JEN!!!!!!!

Jen photographed my 10/5 wedding and did an amazing job! She made my fiancé and I feel extremely comfortable and was a pleasure to work with. From the beginning she was responsive to our needs, easy to get in touch with, and is clearly very gifted and talented at what she does. Our pictures are amazing, and I can't imagine having another photographer!!!

We felt capturing great pictures to have for years to come, were very important on our wedding day. Jennifer Neves was even more than would could have hoped for. She was so helpful during the planning process, and super easy to keep in touch with. She had fantastic ideas for unique photo shots, and also made sure to get all the specific requests that I made. She was extremely professional, but fun at the same time. She kept everyone organized and moving along with ease to make sure we got back to the reception in time. Throughout the day she kept snapping lots of candids, and never said no to another shot idea (even getting into a bounce house with the bridal party!). Overall, she was fantastic. She really helped capture everything we want to remember about the day. Anyone who uses her will be very, very pleased. We can't say enough great things about her work. I give her the absolute HIGHEST recommendation to anyone looking to capture amazing memories. Thanks so much Jen!

My husband and I knew after the first meeting with Jen that she was the photographer for us. She is the most warm and inviting person which makes it so easy to work with her. Her work is amazing, she is so creative and passionate about what she does. Our wedding was at the Biltmore in Providence and Jen was very knowledgeable of the area making awesome suggestions on where we should go to take pictures. Everyone was impressed with how professional and focused she and her team was the entire day. Having Jen as our Photographer was the best decision we could have ever made. I would recommend her to anyone, she is fantastic! We couldn't be happier.

Jen is an absolutely amazing photographer! Her personality is like no other - she takes sweet and kind to a whole new level! Beyond that, the passion and love she has for her job screams perfection in every photo.. From our engagement photo shoot to the rehearsal dinner to the wedding, we could not have asked for better results in capturing each and every special moment.. You can trust that she will get it all, from beginning to end, with lots of fun and creativity along the way.. Don't miss out on this gem!!

I honestly do not even know where to begin about how WONDERFUL Jen and her assistants are!!! She absolutely made our wedding, and the pictures and ideas she had were unbelievable!! She made it so exciting as she would take the pictures and be as happy and excited as we all were! I would recommend her to ANYONE who wants an amazing, fun, extremely professional photographer to capture their day, no matter what the occasion! We will be going back to her for our anniversary photos as well as our belly photos, whenever that may be! We could not be happier!!! THANKS JEN!!!!

When looking for a photographer for our wedding, I did not know where to begin. I learned of Jen through word of mouth. Immediately upon meeting her, I felt so comfortable. She is friendly and approachable and remained that way throughout the entire process. Her enthusiasm for her work is evident, her professionalism is unmatched and she does what she promises to do. I had peace of mind in working with Jen and I was confident that we were going to have a great experience and we did. She made sure that everything was in order on our day, she kept track of time, the weather and all extraneous events in order to get our picutures taken so that we could enjoy our wedding. Her work is amazing and she strives for the perfect shots. She is a true professional and that is what you need during your most important day. It was so much fun having her with us. I recommend her to anyone who is seeking out a photographer.She is one vendor that I cannot say enough about.

Jen is an AMAZING photographer (like off the chain good :) ). She made my husband and I feel so comfortable taking pictures throughout the day and night. Jen did an unbelievable job capturing our most memorable day. Not to mention that she is very enthusiastic about what she does and acts professional. Jen was excited by a bunch of different ideas of shots that I wanted to take (not many photographers would react the same way). My husband and I chose Jen as our photographer not only because she is fantastic at what she does but also because she is the kind of person we would want to grab a drink with (which I think is very important when hiring a photographer because you want someone who you will have fun with while taking pictures – remember they are with you your entire day). I almost forgot to give Ryan, Jen's second photographer, a shout out! Ryan was there every step of the way... she literally helped me get down the aisle haha. My veil got stuck walking down the aisle and Ryan made a quick save for me and I made it down the aisle without losing my veil (phew).

In my career as an event coordinator, I met so many photographers and saw so much work that was just like the last photographers work. Seeing Jens work, and her eye for the "details" literally stopped me in my tracks. She became the photographer that I recommended first, and raved about. When it came time for my own wedding, there was no doubt who our photographer would be. I could not wait to be "that bride" in the photos that she captures so expertly. Jen was a joy to work with all through my planning, and during the actual day. She is fun, funny, and serious at the same time! She helped keep the whole event on schedule and made sure that my bridal party (which was our five kids!) didnt get annoyed taking so many pictures, since she made it fun. I cant wait to pick up our images and frame them all over the house!
She is very energetic, personable and very professional!
She strives to get the best quality shot in every picture.
We had a wedding party of 25 people with 25 different minds... Jen prepared us and kept everyone focused on the task at hand.
We truly enjoyed working with her as she made us feel very comfortable and reassuring every step of the way.
Jen has great charisma and a creative style that we would recommend her not only for weddings, but for all and any event needing a professional photographer.
A truly satisfied Bride & Groom.
